The University of Chicago's Air Quality Life Index (AQLI) shows people in parts of India, the world's second-largest country by population, could live 11 years less due to high levels ofair pollution.
The researchers launched a website that tells users how many years of life air pollution could cost them according to which region of a country they live in.
Only a handful of India's 100 most polluted cities have drawn up plans to combat air pollution despite being asked to do so three years ago, a report from the World Health Organization said earlier this year.
